      HAND #1

      Party Poker, $0.05/$0.10 NL Hold'em Cash Game, 10 Players
      Hand History Converter by Stoxpoker

      SB: $14.71 (147.1 bb)
      BB: $7.62 (76.2 bb)
      UTG: $5.48 (54.8 bb)
      UTG+1: $1.90 (19 bb)
      UTG+2: $12.56 (125.6 bb)
      MP1: $10 (100 bb)
      MP2: $15.17 (151.7 bb)
      Hero (MP3): $2.17 (21.7 bb)
      CO: $9.75 (97.5 bb)
      BTN: $10.22 (102.2 bb)

      Pre-Flop: Hero is MP3 with K
      3 folds, MP1 raises to $0.30, MP2 folds, Hero raises to $2.17 and is all-in, 5 folds

      Results (listed below in white, highlight to see): $0.75 pot
      Hero mucked Kc Ac (high card Ace) and won $0.75 ($0.45 net)

      Allright so here we got a raise in front of us of 3BB.

      So my stack is 21.7BB. If I am going to re-raise I will raising it to 9BB (3x). If he calls, I will be pot committing myself instantly on any flop because:
      My stack would be 12.7BB
      The Pot will be 19.5 BB in total (Deadmoney=1.5BB)

      So if I am correct, I need to push instantly with AKs.
      If this is incorrect, please say so , so I can correct my plays
      thanks :)

      Why you want to scare him out of pot and think only about FE.You should invite only one opp into pot with weaker hand and get bigger portion of his stack,not only original raise.If you are against thinking opp after such 3bet he will continue with KK+.If you against LAG then push is good decision for me.
      Good luck :)

      your logic is generally correct
      we have a position and his raise size is only 3BB
      + your stack is a bit bigger

      its more ev to push if he holds a pocket
      however, by just reraising, we might allow hands like AT/AJ to call
